Gifted students have high-functioning cognitive abilities that require a challenging and intellectually-stimulating educational environment. By assessing the learning needs and objectives of every gifted student in our programs, SIG creates a personalized learning experience. This way, our expert instructors can help your child boost their current strengths and fill any gaps for a comprehensive education.
Empowering children to be proactive learners is a key aspect of our summer programs for gifted kids. As a result, students are given the opportunity to discover and grow into their talents by exploring our broad STEAM+ (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math plus humanities and physical education) curriculum. Additionally, students work on their Culminating Product throughout the course which allows them to advance their research skills, focus on their personal interests, and develop real-world solutions to authentic problems and applications.
SIG prides itself on its diverse student community, providing each gifted learner with additional social and cultural interaction. These interactions can occur in class, and in evening or weekend activities—involving sports, clubs, arts and crafts, social gatherings as well as supervised trips and local area exploration.
Our gifted middle school summer programs allow students to participate in fun and engaging activities with a like-minded community, where they can build meaningful friendships alongside valuable team skills. Such experiences can encourage their growth, boost their confidence, and broaden their perspective. In this way, your child will be better prepared to navigate future challenges, developing a network of gifted peers from all over the world who share the same passion and drive for learning.
SIG’s curriculum is designed to encourage self-discovery, and our dedicated staff and welcoming community are there to help support your child every step of the way. Students can explore their own interests and work on innovative products that push them to think creatively. These learning opportunities also strengthen communication, problem-solving, organization, and leadership skills—enabling students to discover their full potential.
By navigating their coursework and following their schedules on and off-campus, your child will develop a heightened sense of accountability and independence, encouraging them to become more self-reliant and confident. As they go through these experiences, they will have the support of our caring staff who are there to connect with them and ensure an enriching learning adventure.
